Some things just don’t translate.

Like, “Girlllllll, no you didunt!”

I get my pedicures done at Bella Nails near our house.  It’s a really cute place with super sweet girls working there.  Every now and then we try to chat, a little english here and a little Mandarin there.  I was waiting for my nails to dry, “reading” Chinese Vogue and contemplating which facial whitening cream I should buy, and the girl went to test my nail and totally smudged it.  She gave out a little squeal and we both started laughing and I was like, “nu haaaaaair, wo buuuuuuu haoooo”.

I will not be going back there.

As an aside, every time I visit this shop they play different CD’s but with the same Chinese woman singing various “American” songs.  She has a very soft, plain but pleasant voice. Last week it was a compilation consisting of John Denver’s, “Rocky Mountain High”, “Moon River” and an unsettling rendition of “Send in the Clowns”, truth be told, what rendition of that song is NOT unsettling.  Today though I got to hear her cover 12 Sheryl Crow songs.  After “all i wanna do, is have some fun” I just wanted it to stop, I mean really.
